Subject: USS SAN DIEGO (CL-53) OR USS SAN JUAN (CL-54)
The light anti-aircraft cruiser from 00:40-01:06 is either USS San Diego (CL-53) but most likely USS San Juan (CL-54) which was based in and operated out of Noumea from Dec42-Jun43 conducting operations alone and with carriers in the Coral Sea.
